The salesman is not dead. Long live the salesman. Ever recall the play Death of the Salesman? Perhaps not. Because perhaps you are still trying to make that next sale. You haven’t got time for plays, TV shows and movies, that’s how hard it is for you these days. Don’t give up; keep trying, because you’re in a good space right now. The only exercise you’ll be getting is that you would normally get at the gym to get you into shape and turn you into a presentable you.
The exercise jaunt also brings out the best in you in terms of confidence and conviction. There is no need to lie at your next presentation, nor is there a need to put on a poker face. You’re in a good space right now. Maybe you won’t be doing a company presentation right now. Maybe your work is confined to the laptop. You still need to show levels of conviction and confidence by way of the words you type out on your sales pitch sheet.
You’re in a good space right now because there is a growing demand for smart and savvy salesmen and women, not just men anymore. You could be one of them. Don’t worry about your run of bad luck right now. Put the past behind you and set yourself up for some smart and savvy sales force training. These courses cover all aspects of the modern sales environment from statewide traveling to online communications skills.
More importantly perhaps, there’s a need to build up those confidence levels for once and for all. Because your booming voice is needed to make the sales pitch work. Or your smart demeanor that simply melts eyes.
